Music has been neurologically proved to be a super skill that helps children to develop their intelligence in profound ways, thanks to the abstract nature of music that activates most areas of the brain simultaneously while using the body. This special week is designed to be an incredible immersion into the world of music employing a highly innovative method: the Helicona project. This method embraces a myriad of disciplines like, horsemanship, fencing, dancing and theatre: Music will be experienced though games that will merge the improvisational elements of music with the playful elements of other disciplines.
The activities will be held in a safe environment, regarding both government regulations regarding the pandemic and normal safety concerns during sporting events.
It is not necessary to be a musician to come to this course, but it could certainly help! Participants are invited to bring their instruments when possible. The course will be held in English due to our multi-cultural team of instructors, while being aware that the children may have only a basic proficiency of the language. It is our principal objective to encourage children to experience music as the most powerful language to communicate with.
An additional part of this course is to propose an optional separate yet parallel mini-course for parents every afternoon. If they wish to participate, they will experience the activities of the children and therefore actively participate in the educational process. Most importantly, they are offered the opportunity to reflect on how music is an indubitable strategy for their child, for themselves, and for every person in daily life.
